The Post’s Theresa Vargas reported late Monday night that the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, based in Northern California, will pay to air a 60-second ad opposing the Redskins name in seven major markets during Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
The ad will air in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Sacramento, San Francisco and Washington on Tuesday night. It already ran in Miami during the halftime of Game 2 on Sunday.
The original two-minute version — posted on YouTube in the run-up to the Super Bowl — has nearly 2 million views. The 60-second version is above.
Also Monday, Politico reported that the Redskins hired McGuireWoods Consulting last month. The lobbying firm “will work on “discussions of team origins, history and traditions, Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and youth sports, activities of Original Americans’ Foundation,” according to the disclosure form, which can be read here.
